New Students

We are very excited about your interest in taking classes with us. If you are brand new to yoga, this is a decision that could drastically improve the quality of your life! So here is what we suggest:

If this is your first time taking classes at our studio, the New Student Special is a perfect way to sample our classes with unlimited yoga for a full week! Or, if you’re ready to dive in, check out our New Student Membership Special. Our best membership offer created just for first time students. Please note that prenatal and mommy & me classes are not included in this offer. Mats are included in your very first class and are available for rent for $1 after that.

If this is your first time trying a yoga class, we strongly suggest you start by taking our Yoga For Beginners Workshop with Nancy Preston. This 3 hour workshop will provide a basic framework for those new to yoga, or a review for those with yoga experience, with a strong focus on alignment. After this series you will feel confident to join any class on our regular schedule. Get started here — find out when the next Yoga for Beginners workshop is scheduled.

Here is a list of beginner and mixed level classes that are excellent for students at the beginner level.
Each of the classes below is led by an experienced teacher, adept at modifying classes to fit students of all levels.

Wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move and stretch easily. Stay away from anything too baggy or heavy. Shoes and socks are not worn in class.

Mats can be rented or purchased at the studio or brought from home. If you have any valuables please bring them with you to the practice room and store them at the back of the room. Make sure that your phone is completely OFF.

We strongly recommend that you arrive at least 15 minutes early so you have time to sign in, change, and get settled. On your first visit, plan to come a few minutes earlier to fill out a waiver and release form.
